22oz bottle recieved from Mikesgroove. Thanks alot man!!!

A- Pours a golden honey orange with a thin white head that leaves decent lacing.

S- Sweet caramel pale malts with a slight earthy hop presence. Not to much there.

T- Floral earthy hops up front with a solid pale malt base. Some lemon and citrus in there as well.

M- Medium body with moderate carb and a slight bitter dryness in the finish.

Thanks to my bro in law for nabbing a growler of this for my visit. I am assuming this is the same as their pale ale currently on tap. Enjoyed from a pint glass.

a - brew poured a soft brown orange that was semi transparent when held to the light. Head was thin and fizzy.

s - nice pale malts, some earthiness, but very appetizing.

t - extremely balanced pale ale. Not hoppy at all, just a classic American pale. Fresh and crisp. Clean and malty. A bit grainy, but nice overall.

m - crisp and light bodied. Could toss them back all day.

o - overall a really nice American pale ale. Malt forward and not hoppy. Classic. Solid.

A 12oz can picked up at Brusin Ales with a 5.1 abv on the side of the can. It must fluctuate from batch to batch.

A - Copper and bronze with not much clarity, little head and not much lacing

A - Slighty citrus and hoppy, with some pale malt row in the background. Nice mix

T - A light west coast pale ale but not too hoppy. Perfect balance. Slight malty earthy feel, but finishes with a nice hop bite. Very tasty and drinkable

M - Light bodied and medium carbonation. Easy on the tongue for sure. Nothing bitter.

O - A very tasty Pale ale that is well balanced and easy to drink. A great 6 pack for the lake or camping etc. Well done.
